ITEM 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets

Effective February 1, 2014, First Community Corporation ("First Community"), the holding company for First Community Bank, completed its previously announced merger with Savannah River Financial Corporation ("Savannah River"), the holding company for Savannah River Banking Company, pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of August 13, 2013, between First Community, SRMS, Inc., a Georgia corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of First Community, and Savannah River. At closing, SRMS, Inc. merged with and into Savannah River, with Savannah River surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of First Community. Immediately thereafter, Savannah River Banking Company, a South Carolina state bank, also merged with and into First Community Bank, a South Carolina state bank, with First Community Bank surviving the merger and continuing its corporate existence, and Savannah River merged with and into First Community, with First Community as the surviving corporation. Under the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, Savannah River shareholders have the right to receive either $11.00 in cash or 1.0618 shares of First Community common stock, or a combination thereof, for each Savannah River share they owned immediately prior to the merger, subject to the limitation that 60% of the outstanding shares of Savannah River common stock will be exchanged for cash and 40% of the outstanding shares of Savannah River common stock will be exchanged for shares of First Community common stock.

The foregoing description of the Agreement and Plan of Merger does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, which is incorporated herein by reference as Exhibit 2.1.

ITEM 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Under the merger agreement, effective following the closing of the merger, First Community was to appoint three specified members of Savannah River's board of directors to join the boards of directors of First Community and First Community Bank (collectively, the "Board"). Effective February 3, 2014, the Board increased the number of directors from 13 to 16 and appointed J. Randolph Potter as a Class I director, Paul S. Simon as a Class II director, and E. Leland Reynolds as a Class III director. Each of Mssrs. Potter, Simon, and Reynolds are anticipated to be nominated as a Board nominee for election by the shareholders to the Board at the 2014 annual meeting of shareholders of First Community. Mr. Simon is the former Chairman of Savannah River's board of directors, and Mr. Potter is the former Chief Executive Officer of Savannah River. No committee assignments have been made yet for Mssrs. Potter, Simon, and Reynolds.

Mssrs. Potter, Simon, and Reynolds will receive compensation as outside directors consistent with First Community's standard compensation practices for outside directors and will be eligible to participate in First Community's director deferred compensation plan, whereby they can elect to defer their annual retainer and earned monthly fees. A description of First Community's standard compensation practices for outside directors can be found in the section titled "Executive Compensation" in First Community's definitive proxy statement in connection with its 2013 annual meeting of shareholders filed April 8, 2013.

In addition, Mr. Potter has also entered into a consulting agreement with First Community Bank that became effective immediately after consummation of the merger. The consulting agreement has a one-year term, subject to early termination for death or disability, and requires Mr. Potter to provide continued oversight of banking operations in the Aiken and Augusta markets, as well to help insure a successful merger and to aid in coordinating the transition of customers, employees and shareholders, and to support First Community Bank's existing operations and expansion opportunities in the Greenville, South Carolina market. Under the consulting agreement, Mr. Potter will receive monthly compensation in the amount of $13,333, plus up to $750 per month to partially offset his health insurance costs. The consulting agreement also restricts Mr. Potter's ability to compete with First Community Bank or solicit its customers or employees for the one-year period following termination of the consulting agreement. The form of consulting agreement is included as Exhibit B-2 to the merger agreement.

As disclosed in First Community's Current Report on Form 8-K filed August 14, 2013, each former director of Savannah River, including Mssrs. Potter, Simon, and Reynolds, executed a noncompete agreement with First Community. Additionally, each of the former directors and executive officers of Savannah River, including Mssrs. Potter, Simon, and Reynolds, also executed a voting and support agreement with First Community pursuant to which, among other things, they agreed to vote all of their shares of Savannah River common stock in favor of the merger and against alternative transactions and not to sell or transfer their shares of Savannah River common stock prior to consummation of the merger. The forms of such agreements are included as Exhibits E and F to the merger agreement.
